Share skills, knowledge, direction, values and experiences. Above all, we all share in an eagerness to develop and progress.
Dare to take risks and to have the confidence to go that extra mile. Going out of their comfort zones; acting in the face of uncertainty.

Speech Therapy & SEND Support at Take Part
Roxy Verdon has a passion for Music as we know, but she also has a passion for inclusivity. Her student centred approach is one of the very many attributes she brings to our offer at Take Part. Speech Therapy is just one of the essential parts of Roxy’s delivery blended throughout her lesson plans, to ensure optimum communication whether through singing, acting or in every day life. Roxy’s pivot on Lockdown 1.0 was to enhance her Level 3 TA qualification through to a Level 5 whilst up-skilling her vocal qualifications. We are thrilled with Roxy’s achievement, and so proud of this new qualification she has gained as continued professional development. If you want to hear more about Roxy’s improved skill set to bring to the pupils of Take Part please read on.Read more
